Lady Gaga was moved to tears at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival after she was praised for her performance in A Star Is Born.
Gaga was with the film’s director and costar Bradley Cooper as well as other cast members at a Q&A panel at TIFF Sunday.
The singer plays Ally, a struggling artist who has given up on her dream of becoming a singer until seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) convinces her to try again.
Gaga praised her cast members and Cooper for putting “every last drop of blood from their heart and their veins on set every single day,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
She broke down in tears when Lukas Nelson – son of Willie Nelson and co-writer of songs on the film – told her, “You just destroyed every single scene you were in.” The words caused the audience to break into applause which instantly drew a standing ovation.
THR’s Chris Gardner was there and posted several clips from the Q&A.
